State officials say about 2,000 people pay for prostituted children in Connecticut every year, but no one in the state has been charged with soliciting children under a felony-level law that took effect in 2013. Erin Williamson, with the victims’ advocacy group Love146, says across the country, it’s the victims who usually get arrested because it’s easier to recognize them. That makes it hard to address the real source of the problem.
